PR is the best tool to throw light on the truth:  Dr. KV Ramanachary 

Hyderabad: Public Relations is an essential tool to remove the dark clouds created by misinformation-led misunderstandings in the lives of people and institutes, Dr. KV Ramanachary, Advisor to the Government of Telangana, has observed.


He called upon every government, private and corporate department, and business establishment to appoint a PR Officer to disseminate the right message while countering false propaganda against them. “Everyone and every department should realize the fact that PR setup is the only way to throw light on facts. Those who don’t have PR support or a mechanism to spread the right information are bound to face issues,”
